This week has been strangely emotional for me. I found out last Monday that someone I went to university with was recently diagnosed with cancer for the second time in two years. It's stage 4 and it looks pretty grim. She's only 36 years old. She's full of life and leads a very active and healthy life. She is just a very good and positive person. The news knocked the wind out of me for some reason. I guess I didn't realize how much I cared for this person and how motivating she was to me even though I haven't talked to her in years and we were never that close. I have only read her blog from time to time to find out what she was up to. And she is always up to something! Her weight loss journey and her love for running is all documented and such an interesting and inspiring read. She inspired me to try out C25k! She has done so many remarkable things and it kills me that she is going through this.
